"Classic Italian Sensibilities: America's 10 Best Italian Restaurants."
Wine Spectator by Harvey Steinman, March 1997

"California's best - Chef Paul Bertolli's fanaticism for Italian
food earns him the James Beard award."
Oakland Tribune by Joan Zoloth, June 1999

"If Paul Bertolli's cooking at Chez Panisse was four-star (which it was),
then what he's doing now at Oliveto is in the galaxies...Not only is he
producing the best Italian food in the Bay Area; I'd put his cooking up
against that of anyone in the United States, or Italy for that matter."
Michael Bauer

Now in its fourteenth year, Oliveto continues to expand its national reputation. Oliveto cooking, known for its celebration of seasonal ingredients from local farms, fishmongers, and foragers, features a central fireplace and wood-burning oven. The elegant interior, adorned with seasonal flowers, earth-toned fabrics, and hand-hewn iron ornamention, reflects the simplicity and refinement of its menu.
